computer science
Assoc. Prof. of Computer Science
Wheaton College (IL)

My primary technical area is operating systems/distributed systems, though I am also interested in social issues/impacts of (and on) computing. I take particular interest in in the variety of perspectives on what the disciplines/professions in computing--including just where the various things called "computer science" have come from.

Scientific data and information systems
PhD candidate
Princeton University Program in History of Science

I study the history of scientific data and information systems, primarily since the late nineteenth century and especially in the chemical sciences. My dissertation, "Nominally Rational: Systematic Nomenclature and the Structure of Organic Chemistry, 1889-1940," traces how European and American chemists built and used rules of nomenclature to order the increasingly numerous and complex objects of chemical science and industry.

I am also pursuing research in the application of physical and digital technology to the conservation and authentication of paintings, the automation of scientific reasoning in late twentieth century synthetic organic chemistry, and the historical relations between structural organic chemistry and graph theory.

History of Computing in France and in Europe
Chargé de recherche, CNRS & Paris-Sorbonne University. Chercheur associé with the Centre Alexandre Koyré

Pierre Mounier-Kuhn has published three books:

• In 2010 an analysis of the emergence of computing in French research and higher education:
L'Informatique en France, de la Seconde Guerre mondiale au Plan Calcul. L'Emergence d'une Science
(Presses de l'Université Paris-Sorbonne, 2010, 720 p.)

• In 2013 a corporate history on information technologies in a major French bank:
Mémoires Vives. 50 Ans d'Informatique chez BNP Paribas (BNP Paribas, 2013, 196 p.)

• In 2016, a global, richly illustrated History of Computing (in French in its initial version). Emmanuel Lazard & Pierre Mounier-Kuhn, Histoire illustree de l’informatique, Paris, EDP Sciences.


His main fields of interest are:
• The historical geography of computer science and the process of academic discipline building
• IT in banks
• Computer & peripheral manufacturers in France, particularly IBM, Bull, SEA, and new entrants
• Software & service companies, particularly the service bureau sector
• The development of early Air & Navy defense systems, and their influence on the French computer industry
• Governmental policies regarding computer technology and industry.
• Transnational relationships in the scientific and industrial spheres, particularly between the USA and France, within Europe and with the former communist countries.

He collects contemporary art in the form of vintage computer cards and components.

P. Mounier-Kuhn has co-organized a number of international conferences, exhibitions and publications in these fields, and published some 60 papers in French and in English. He participated in "Software for Europe", a collaborative research project within the European Science Foundation. He served in the jury of the Computer History Museum Book Prize (2010-2012).

I am interested in the ways that technology, law, economic policy, and popular culture have shaped the landscape of the modern United States. My first book, Democracy of Sound, dealt with the politics of music and intellectual property since the dawn of sound recording, and I am currently working on a project about the rise of the information economy and the emergence of “creativity” as a central theme in discussions of social and economic change in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century.
